A Letter to the Editor appeared in today's Tulsa World which I thought was interesting and nostalgic:
I was interested to see the article about Western Doughty's photo project [...] January 2. My late wife and I stayed there on our honeymoon in 1959. It was a very nice motel on Route 66.
We were living in Joplin, Mo. at the time and we only had three or four days for our honeymoon. We were headed for Oklahoma City.
The room at the Desert Hills Motel cost me $8, with a 16-cent room tax. I still have the receipt. We stayed in Room 151.
